Acts 15 Model: General or Ecumenical Councils
of the Church Universal
Following the example of the Apostolic Church in the persons
of the Apostles in the book of Acts, especially chapter 15,
the Catholic Church is motivated by a number of scriptures.
The Catholic Church takes seriously the need to know the truth
and to refute error.
When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from
the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the
Father, he will testify to me.
